San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) June 29, 2012
Sirius Computer Solutions, Inc., a leading national IT solutions integrator, today announced it has been recognized by UBM Channel as a part of CRN’s 2012 Solution Provider 500 list, which ranks the top technology integrators in North America. Formerly known as the “VAR 500,” the Solution Provider 500 ranks the highest-producing solution provider organizations in the IT channel from hardware sales, software sales, and managed IT services. Sirius placed 29 in the annual ranking.
The Solution Provider 500 ranking is based on revenue size, and considers each company’s forward-thinking approach to the channel. In particular, the Solution Provider 500 selection panel sought to recognize companies that are building out practices around the data center and virtualization while offering software integration and application development skills. Revenue size is determined by the amount of annual products and services sold over the course of 2011. Companies with no public documentation were required to submit a notarized affidavit attesting to their 2010 and 2011 revenues.
“The organizations listed in this year’s Solution Provider 500 list are today’s true integration innovators who generate high revenues by putting their customers’ needs first,” said Kelley Damore, Vice President and Editorial Director at UBM Channel. “Their primary role is to engineer ways to leverage technology solutions that help customers exceed their sales goals, drive client satisfaction, expand internationally or accelerate new product development. In essence, they are today’s IT integration leaders for middle market and enterprise customers. We congratulate Sirius for making this year’s list and look forward to covering their continued success.”
Sirius President and CEO Joe Mertens said that the company’s continued rise up the 500 list demonstrates its commitment to providing best-of-breed solutions to clients across all industries. “Even in a tough selling environment, Sirius has flourished by partnering with the world’s top technology companies, offering cross-brand solutions that help clients overcome their business and technology challenges, and supporting them with world-class services. This achievement is a testament to our employees and our partners.”
